I was married. After then due to certain reasons, I got legally separated from my wife. My question is "I registered my marriage in register office. So, is it compulsory for me to have a divorce decree to marry another girl and have a new marriage certificate for new wife?"
To clear my previous divorce, we did divorce agreement in which it was mentioned that we both parties are separated permanently, so now onwards both parties are legally rightful to live their independent life and can marry any other person. No party is going to have objection or dispute in this matter. And if we do so, it will be considered as null and void.
I am asking this question because my old wife didn't support me to have divorce decree. We filed mutual concern to have divorce decree under section 13(b) but for 8 months after our petition, she continuously remained absent. So my case got dismissed. After some time I found that she has already gone to outside India.
Please advise me that Divorce decree is must for me or Having Divorce Deed/ agreement on 100 Rs. Stamp paper is enough for me.
One more question, Can I give my name to my NEW wife or not?
Thanking you in advance.
